Chaos have been fucked over consistently since 2007, I think most players are used to it by now and either use a different Codex or lump the one you have.

Compared to what a Wyvern throws out, (4 TL'd S4 Shred) Blasts, for the same cost, a Whirlwind throwing out a single S5 AP4 blast is ridiculously underpowered. Alternatively, give it 2 shots, or make it accurate on the move (perhaps a 2" guidance move to represent the high level AI warheads and allow it to fire as if the target was line of sight similar to how nuncio boxes work, THEN it's good.

It will be forever that way, because unlike AM, SM don't need much help to deal with T4, and if they do, well, a Thunderfire does the same, but better, and is no longer the glass cannon it once was.

Sorry to hear that that unit won't be coming 1-3.

Also, via Bird in the Trees:

Deathwatch Kill Team Kit
Kit is built atop the Plastic Sternguard kit

SM-box-sternguard
Includes an additional Deathwatch sprue loaded with Killteam bits including:

– Over a dozen shoulderpads (Half Deathwatch logos, half various chapter logos)

– New Deathwatch heads

– Multiple Deathwatch equipment back/powerpacks

– Unique Killteam weapons (both shooting and assault)

– Deathwatch pouches, seals, etc, minor bits.

There's also some uncertainty wether the Deatwatch VS Stealercult is a standalone game (assassin style) or a "starter set".

this would make me a happy bunny, sternguard are my most popular space marine kit at the moment and shoving another sprue in the box would just be gravy and throw in a kill team deathwatch codex/board game too would be extra special gravy with bits of meat in it.
